Earlier today, Het Laatste Nieuws and Gazet van Antwerpen stated Queens Park Rangers have almost reached an agreement with Royal Antwerp for Michael Frey’s transfer. It was also said the Championship side are in talks with the striker to sort out personal terms.

HLN reported QPR will sign 29-year-old on a ‘rental basis’, while GVA made no mention of the transfer formula.

According to Voetbal Krant, Martí Cifuentes’ side will sign the 29-year-old on a loan deal until the end of this season and cover his full salary.

The Switzerland international hasn’t featured for the Jupiler Pro League side this season after a fallout with manager Mark van Bommel.

Frey’s contract expires in the summer and QPR’s interest has presented the Belgian club an opportunity to get rid of his salary. This seems to be substantial, at least relatively, as the report states he’s a ‘very expensive’ player for Royal Antwerp.

KV Kortrijk had also shown interest in Frey, but had to end their pursuit because his salary was too high for them. He’s now set to join QPR and Voetbal Krant state the operation is ‘as good as completed’.
